Power Ranking the NFC North: Offense

5 of 5

1. Aaron Rodgers

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL. It’s hard to write anything that hasn’t already been said about Rodgers. My question on Rodgers is at 31 years old, how much longer will he dominate the NFC North? Lions, Bears and Vikings fans would like to know because they are growing tired of seeing him dominate.

2. Matthew Stafford

Regardless of what you feel about Matthew Stafford, there is no doubt that he is the number two guy in the NFC North. Stafford’s ability to throw the ball in ways that no other quarterback can is not something that scouts and pundits say to hear themselves talk. If he can continue to improve his footwork and decision-making, Stafford could be one of the best in the league. If not, he will continue to be a guy that is good but not great.

3. Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler, the most hated man in Chicago? Jay Cutler is a mystery that will never be solved. Despite all the interceptions and fumbles, Cutler actually had a decent year. In fact in 2014 Cutler had his best statistical year that he’s had since coming to Chicago. While he does deserve a good amount of blame for the Bears struggles, does he deserve it all? Another question is have the Bears given up their attempts to trade him? It’s more than likely that Bears fans will have to get used to seeing Cutler in Chicago.

Teddy Bridgewater

Bridgewater came on strong at the end of his rookie year after a tumultuous start. But you won’t see me rank him any higher than four unlike other pundits that believe he is second coming. I will however say that in the next five years, Vikings fans will be very happy with their quarterback. The question for Bridgewater is will he have a sophomore slump?
